Russian MFA Criticizes U.S. Senate Draft Resolution
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 14 Dec.'10 / 11:59

A draft resolution, initiated in the U.S. Senate and calling for recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia as Georgia’s territories “occupied” by Russia, is “illogical”, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on December 13.

“We of course do not question the right of American lawmakers to give their own assessment to the situation in the region, but at the same time we have to note with regret, that the draft resolution, as well as positions of many members of the Congress ignores new reality, which has emerged after Saakashvili’s regime unleashed aggression in August, 2008,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

“As a result of these actions – few doubt that it was Tbilisi, which unleashed the aggression – independent states have emerged – Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Still considering them [Abkhazia and South Ossetia] as ‘regions of Georgia occupied by the Russian Federation’ is, to say the least, incorrect and illogical,” it said.
The Russian Foreign Ministry also said that Tbilisi’s attempts to restore pre-war status quo were “illusive.” It also said that Moscow was ready to contribute to building of “equal and constructive” relations between “these states”, including through signing between them a non-use of force agreements. 

“We hope, that the American Senators will take into consideration these indisputable facts while assessing situation in Georgia and around Georgia,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
